Wrestlemania delivers iconic moments for superstars signifying why we call it the showcase of immortals. Sometimes it does the opposite by delivering shocking losses that we can barely expect. One such could be waiting for us on this weekend in one of the main events of WWE Raw.
Brock Lesnar defends the WWE Universal Championship against ‘The Architect’ Seth Rollins on this Sunday Night in a mega-match. The audience could not be happier for their favorite superstar who’s won the Royal Rumble match and got the opportunity to compete for the prime title of Raw.
He has been the carrier of the Monday Night Raw programming for the better part of 2018 and 2019. So nobody deserves to win the championship than him. This is why the fans expected to see him coming out as the winner ending the nightmare reign that Brock Lesnar is having on the flagship show for the past several months.
But the recent reports will surely upset most of the WWE fans as the odds are clearly against Seth Rollins. We should not expect to see the contender winning the championship for the first time as the betting numbers are not favoring him.

“According to WrestleZone, Brock Lesnar is now the favorite to win the match at WrestleMania at -125 as compared to Rollins -115, which isn’t the biggest difference.”
Earlier, these are the same odds that raised hopes for Seth Rollins’ fans. He was clearly the favorite for a significant amount of time before the tables were turned at the very last moment. This could be due to Brock Lesnar’s contract renewal with WWE through which he will now perform in Saudi Arabia.
Another big reason could be poor merchandise selling that is barring Seth Rollins to get the coveted prize in sports entertainment. Despite getting a big push, he is not being able to secure his spot into the top 5 list. This could be the sole reason why the creative team might not be in favor of making him the new champion.
